My rather rough idea for my arm tattoo is this: A Gigantomachy scene.
For anyone who doesn’t know, I have a degree in Classical History, which encompasses Greek and Roman cultures, including religion and mythology which I’m rather passionate about.
The Gigantomacy story comes from fairly early Greek myth. A pretty decent rundown is on wikipedia, but the short form is that the Giants were one of the offspring of Gaia(essentially the physical Earth), and the Olympic gods were children of Kronos, who was the son of Gaia. The Gigantomachy itself was a massive cosmic battle for supremacy, which the Olympians obviously won.
I want a depiction of this battle to cover my entire left arm, and to include the principle figures involved in the action (Zeus, Hera, Hermes, Heracles, Apollo, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Athena, Poseidon, Artemis, and the Fates) and have them armed with their signature weapons (ie. Zeus has his thunderbolts, Athena has her spear, etc.). I think they will all be more or less paired off with an opposing giant, all locked in battle flowing down my arm.
The style I want this in is sort of combination of the sculpture style from the High Classical Period in Athens, when this myth was still current, with a mix of Renaissance Italian, like Bernini. I want minimal colour, mostly creams and grays to simulate the unpainted marble like a sculpture, but with gold highlights on the armour.
I think this will be totally rad, and worth all the real estate on my arm, but it’s still a long time coming.
